    First edition

    There are still works from Mendelssohn's later years which are unknown or have yet to be published. This little spiritual Festgesang was quite possibly tossed off by the composer in only one day. It was commissioned "for the benefit of the poor" in Schwaz, a little town in Tyrol. Scholars have noted with a certain amazement that the music of the Festgesang was to play a key role in the Lobgesang , written shortly thereafter.
